The Federal Communications Commission plans to ban all sales of new Huawei and ZTE telecommunications devices in the U.S. - as well as some sales of video surveillance equipment from three other Chinese firms - out of national security concerns, sources with direct knowledge of the private deliberations told Axios.

The restrictions, outlined in a draft order by the Federal Communications Commission, would also target video surveillance gear by three other Chinese firms: Hytera, Hikvision and Dahua, the person said, adding that the ban would only apply to new products by the companies that have not already received FCC equipment authorization.

The order will still need to be voted on by the agency's four commissioners. It would be the first time the agency has moved to ban an electronics company on national security grounds.

If it gets the go-ahead, the ban would be an escalation in the US government's sanctions against those companies and against Chinese tech firms in general. In 2019, the FCC barred Huawei and ZTE from receiving any of billions of dollars in federal subsidies meant to expand broadband access in the US.
